Dear MUG, are there any known problems with
Maple 6.0.1 running on RedHat 7 (x86) machines?
When I upgraded a working Maple 6.0 standalone Linux
installation to Maple 6.0.1 on both a Dell laptop
and a Viglen (UK manufacturer) PC both maple and xmaple
produced an "Illegal instruction" error and a core dump.
Oddly TestMaple still ran. The licence manager seems to
be up and running OK and reverting to Maple 6.0 gave me
back a working installation.
I'd like to get 6.0.1 going since graphics are painfully slow
to display in 6.0
"Without the Maple software, we would have to spend weeks generating the equations of motion for every experiment. Then the chances that we did it right would basically be near zero. There would always be a mistake somewhere. It is very difficult to set up a dynamic motion model by hand." - Jean-Claude PiedBeouf, Ph.D Manager of Robotics, Canadian Space Agency
"Its very good - highly accurate and easy to use. The speed of Maple allows me to change equations and quickly reintegrate them into the application, so more possibilities can be explored to achieve the precise effect desired." Shawn Neely, Senior R & D Director for PDI/Dreamworks
